COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our darkest year round beer; however, looks can be deceiving. Dunkel boasts brilliant crimson hues from the large amounts of Munich malts used, which creates a fuller bodied beer. The decoction brewing process also adds depth and richness. Bitterness is moderate, with just enough to balance out any sweetness from the malt. Dunkel is smooth, rich and complex, but does not finish heavy.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a slight hazy burnt brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light messy lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell started off with a sharp sweet breadiness rolling over some nutty malts. Lager yeast shows a nice sweet effect. The taste was mainly sweet with a slight smokey effect rolling over in flavor. A slight roasty to sweet aftertaste rolls into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly smooth with a decent sharp nuttiness hitting my tongue. Overall, as a Munich Dunkel, it works. I’d have again and it could definitely be a decent food beer. Maybe closer to dessert.

puboflyons (2538) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 21, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Gorgeous reddish-amber pour under a long lasting mocha colored head. The aroma has a bit of burnt malts, yeasty notes, thin chocolate, and earthy hops. Lighter body. The taste is smooth, slightly sweet but more bitter as it goes along.

A very good Dunkel. Pours a beautiful thick red-brown with a great white head. Smells like roasted nuts. Taste is nutty to start, with some cream soda, and a malty finish. Very smooth. Had on tap at Sugarbush.

En fut à la brasserie. De couleur brune, la mousse ne colle pas beaucoup. Les arômes sont fumés avec des notes de fruits des champs. Au goût, les sucres du malt ressortent bien en y laissant s’échapper des accents de mélasse de petits fruits, de caramel. Très relevé comme goût. La texture est un peu mince cependant.
